I usually use pastebin.com, but that isn't mobile friendly, so after a quick google search, I found shrib, which looks like it fits your description of a simple online notepad with a unique URL. The content seemed to sync well between mobile and desktop with my testing (note, I used 2 different mobile browsers, with one set to request desktop site). If ...

I would talk with your developer about what he's most comfortable with. In general, an experienced developer can build caching layers to handle scale (supposedly all tweets go through MySQL). If you want to develop a MVP, I'd probably suggest Rails with Postgres on Heroku. The strongest use case for something like Cassandra is capturing information like ...

ownCloud / Nextcloud would cover that, but might be a bit overkill. Both are available for self-hosting, and both also offer a list of providers who'd host it for you. Let's see how they'd fit your requirements¹: simple to use: I'd say so – but of course, that depends on the user :) no installation needed to use: chose your provider, then it's a clear "Yes"....

I invite you to have a look at my application SilentNotes; It is a FOSS application which I have developed with a strong focus on privacy. The notes can be synchronized end-to-end encrypted between multiple Android and Windows devices and can be self-hosted. Currently supported are the FTP protocol, the WebDav protocol, Dropbox, Google-Drive and One-Drive. ...

Joplin seems to me to satisfy all of these (besides the direct synchronization issue, because it requires a medium such as Dropbox to synchronize data with). I am just a happy user of this.

You can use Asterisk PBX, that will control outgoing calls. It has API so you can tell asterisk to dial numbers and the agents (workers) will not need to see them.

Originally supposed to be a comment, but on request of the OP expanded to an answer: You won't need an additional plugin for that, and even can stick to your current browser named Firefox: Instead of playing golf with the mouse going via Tools › Web Developer › Responsive Design View, simply hit Shift-Ctrl-M to achieve the same. That's not too much overhead,...
